Before my stupid assed heart attack, and other complications..
someone sent me an amp to modify.
I can't figure out who..
no notes, no return label, no email... zip.
I don't wanna rip this guy off... even though he's never contacted me since then, I'm pretty sure he'd want the amp.
Pretty straightforward. If you like 6V6 tones, here they are. 2X12AX7 in the preamp.About 20 watts. Volume, Tone. hi/lo inputs. I've added NFB on a switch since I took this pic. and of course power jewel and standby.
12" Eminence Cannibis Rex. All in a used Raven RG60 cabinet.
Bases on the 5E3...
I've gotten some cheapo guitar parts at wish.com
and they were cheap but good.. pedal footswitch, etc.
and they have guitar bodies and bass bodies.
around 25.00 plus shipping. 12.00
and they appear to not only be maple.. but one piece.
Now.. I'm not expecting or looking for snobby remarks about...
My 91 sheraton II. finally got a bigsby type whammy... roller bridge. knocked out two pots... Kent Armstrong bucker size single coils. and a little plate that says Epiphone over Blondy. plays great at 28yrs old.
Was told a certain case would fit, and they'd ship the guitar in that case.
It did not fit. So, they gave me the superior, and cooler!, Epiphone wooden case
for the same price. 100.00. saving me 20.00.
Guitar arrived, there was a chip, see pics, in the bottom on the back...
Ok. I was all set to turn 65...
I had three guitars to build I'd been holding back on..
Four new amp chassis.. three SS amps to put tubes in..
and a couple of pedals to build.
All set up, rarin' to go.
in bed for quite a while.. so much so that I lost a hell of a lot...

I had to get one.
Not able to hold heavy guitars.. even strats or teles around my neck.
Needed something very light. This is perfect.
I agree with 99% of the review, I'll post my own opinions later.
The arthritis kept me from...
So I agree to help two of my sons friends out.. doing a marshall 100W and a gibson SG for cost.
Same time, building a new epi vj 15 watt amp for a past customer.
and got a build job for a combo.. really cool custom amp.
We start household total spring cleaning..
I go to close the...
Here's my current situation.
I have a torn right foot achilles tendon.
How, I dunno.
and some jazz called planar something or other, which boils down to
a left foot I can't walk on without about 2" of padding.
And. I have a gibson SG on my kitchen table,
a Marshall JCM800 and a...
This is a later model, with the board mounted pots.
In fact, the pots connecting to the board is all that holds the board in.
the board is a piece of bean counter ca ca.
It's thin, the traces are shit, the vias are shit.
It's very hard to work on.
VJ's are much much better.
rebuilding the wood for the pup mounting rings.
Previously had a control plate added.. pickguard removed..
finish was pretty rough..
headstock had broken off..
this guitar played GREAT.. I couldn't believe it.. Looked like it had been through
hell but played and sounded just fine...
just my two cents on this..
bass channel.. (no.1)
G6 bassman or Brownface mod to tone stack.
Improved tone overall, inc. ODrive. and
the switch is changed to a middle adjustment.
since these are treble bass only controls. the improvement
is just right.
I hope this is ok. I don't think of myself as a dealer. I've been meaning to ebay these for a long time but never got around to it.
